Sam Webb: How did your season go last year?
Justin Maclin: "It went real good. I had 95 tackles and 19 sacks."
Sam Webb: Give me a scouting report. Break down your game for folks that haven't seen you play?
Justin Maclin: "I'm fast. I play hard all the way to the ball no matter how far away it is; I just want to make plays."
Sam Webb: Let's talk about recruiting. When did your Michigan offer come down?
Justin Maclin: "It came like two weeks ago. The coach came up here this week, on Monday."
Sam Webb: Was it a surprise or had Michigan been on you all along?
Justin Maclin: "It was a surprise. I haven't really been hearing from them. It was an offer I wanted."
Sam Webb: What is it about Michigan that you like so much?
Justin Maclin: "Tradition. I feel like they going to be able to be good in a few years with Rich Rodriguez. They got a lot to look up for."
Sam Webb: Do you have any familiarity with or ties to the state of Michigan?
Justin Maclin: "I've got a few friends that live in Michigan - my momma does."
Sam Webb: So how many offers do you have at this point?
Justin Maclin: "About 15."
Sam Webb: Of those 15, have any of those schools started to separate themselves from the pack?
Justin Maclin: "No they're all pretty even right now."
Sam Webb: Have you been able to get out on any visits yet?
Sam Webb: You just named four schools that are all relatively warm weather. How do you feel about schools where it gets a little bit colder?
Justin Maclin: "I'm good with the cold. I've got cramping problems (laughing). (The cold) would be real nice."
Sam Webb: When you get ready to sit down and make your choice, your final decision; what are going to be the most significant factors in that choice?
Justin Maclin: "How soon I'll be able to play, academics, and is it going to be up to par with the elite schools. I am going to be able to win a national championship and go to bowl games. I'll also look at my relationship with the coaches and how I am around the players."
Sam Webb: What is Michigan telling to you about that playing time situation?
Justin Maclin: "They just say if I work hard and do what I have to do, I don't have to worry about playing time, I'm going to get it."
Sam Webb: Do you have a timeline for when you'd like to make your decision?
Sam Webb: Have any of those All American games called you?
Justin Maclin: "Yeah the Under Armour and the Army game."
Sam Webb: Do you know which one you going to play in yet?
Justin Maclin: "I'm not sure yet. I think I might play in the Army one."
Sam Webb: Final question… you said the Michigan was an offer that you were looking to get. Do you think that you are going to visit Ann Arbor?
Justin Maclin: "Yes. I'm thinking right now that I'm pretty sure I'm going to end up visiting Michigan."
